Sense of the Season

At Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site

It is the Yuletide again. Are you ready? Have you done your shopping, bought the turkey and baked the pie? Have you ever wondered where some of your Christmas traditions started? Visit Charles Towne Landing to learn how the colonists celebrated the season. Maybe you will even see some of your own family’s traditions. Throughout the day, visit with costumed interpreters in the common house. You can learn about traditional holiday customs in England and how those customs may have been modified in the new colony. Watch as our colonists prepare meals over the hearth, play traditional games, and make holiday crafts.
